The EQB is celebrating its premiere in China, because it is first produced there and first launched on the market there. In Germany, the launch of the SUV derived from the Mercedes-Benz GLB is scheduled for autumn, while America is scheduled for 2022. The second production plant for the EQB will be Kecskemét in Hungary, where an electric car will be built for the first time. The batteries contribute to the plants in Kamenz (Accumotive) and the Polish Jawor. < / p>

In China, the EQB starts as a potent AMG with an output of 292 hp (215 kW), in Europe, various models with front or all - wheel drive are on offer from the market launch. The most powerful variant will also have more than 270 hp. The battery initially has a capacity of 66 kWh, which should be suitable for more than 400 kilometers of range. Later, there should be a larger battery. With the charging technology Mercedes does not reach for the stars so much, only 100 kW with direct current are possible, because others can do more. At home on the wallbox, alternating current with an output of 11 kW can be processed. < / p> New picture gallery : Mercedes EQB

Regarding the space available, the EQB benefits from its relationship to the GLB. It is based on its shell structure, the body has been adapted to the special requirements, for example the battery is protected in a frame of extruded profiles. At 4.68 meters length there is space for up to seven people, 2.83 meters is the wheelbase. In the third row, however, only people up to 1.65 meters in size can sit. The specifications for the load volume hardly differ from the GLB: 495 litres as a five-seater, the maximum load volume is 1710 litres. It is slightly less with three rows of seats. < / p>

Externally, the EQB is very similar to the GLB, but there are the electro-specific design elements such as the black grill or the surrounding light bands at the front and rear as well as blue colour accents.
